Financing options?

Brad Thomsen's picture

Buyer wants to buy a property to put in a tenant and then sell to the tenant in 24 months for a profit.

Conventional financing is asking for 20% down for investment properties.

Is there a way to get the downpayment to a more manageable 5% down?

financing options

Brad have you considered sandwich L/O? You could find a property which would suit your buyers tenant and L/O from the seller and L/O to tenant buyer.

Ex: seller 100k will L/O with 3k down and 400 month for 24 months.

buyer L/O to tenant buyer 115k with 5k down(nonrefundable) and 600 month for 12 months

Mix the numbers any way you want.

Win Win Win for all.


Think less ~ Do More !!

Geez... too much time last week fussing about doing a bit of this, and learning a bit of that and being too hesitant.... I know better than falling into that trap.

It is a mental path to business failure.

Need to get back into Action!

Take Action = Results ~ That is what is going to get me there.

its the 'trap' alright- looks like the sand trap according to your pic

Hit 'em long and straight.

Drop one and hit it again.

Where's that beverage cart?

Hi Brad

congratulations on starting your rei journey; you are right, every day that you don't do something, you have to add it to your goal date, and you can get used to just adding the days and not taking action... so having a partner to keep yourself motivated and accountable helps. Also, if you keep a rei journal on this site instead of writing on your own guestbook, it can help you stay focused, and other investors are more likely to read your posts and comment.

wishing you success,
